Quaker Valley Orchards
Will and Winifred Schulteis
Quaker Valley Orchards and Guest House is a 220 acre fruit farm located in the heart of the Adams County fruit belt. The farm has been in the Schulteis family for over 40 years.
James and Mae Schulteis purchased the farm in 1963, from the Prichett Family. They grew mainly fruit, specializing in peaches and apples. Although their are lots of fond memories of different farm animals and preserving lots of vegetables grown on the farm over the years.
In 2000 my husband, Winn (Jim and Mae's youngest
son) and myself, Fredi, took over Quaker Valley Orchards and its
operations. Jim and Mae then retired(?) to North Carolina, but
continue to return to PA. in the fall to help out with the apple harvest.
